That was totally unexpected. What a shame for the world. What a great contribution that man has made, his charisma, hope and positivity will always be what I remember of him.

We will miss you Superman. Best wishes to friends and family.

How sad. He didn't always have the best of luck did he? He seemed to maintain a great attitude though, and did so much that was positive. He is a sad loss.

Oh I hadn't heard the news and saw the thread - my heart plummetted.
What a strong man he was - where he got his strength from I'll never know. The tireless work he did for disabled people and work into spinal research were endless.

My heart goes out to his wife, Dana and family - they'll be devastated.

RIP dear Christopher - another star to shine in the sky tonight.

I was both shocked and saddened to learn of that this morning. He had adapted so well to his situation. Very sad to have to leave the world like that. I also commend his wife for staying with him till the end. That says a lot about her.

RIP Superman:(

RIP Christopher

I heard this news this morning and it made me so sad, I just can't believe it. He was such a great person and soooo happy no matter what, I hope I can be more like him.

I heard it on the Art bell show at 11pm last night. I was surprised also. He was a great example of when life gives you lemons make lemonade.
My heart and prayers go out also to Dana and kids. If any one gets a chance get the audio book of his story. He reads it himself its awesome.

REST IN PEACE SUPERMAN!!!!!:( I almost cried when I heard thismorning in the shower.:(

10-11-2004, 02:19 PM
:( I can't say I was a fan of his or that I even knew much about him but I was always happy to hear good news about him. I always saw him as a strong man. I am very, very sorry to hear about his passing. :(

No more wheelchair....

Just wide open spaces and the ability to fly.

I've so admired the way that he and Dana have faced adversity. Just heard the news this morning and was dismayed. What a shock.

10-11-2004, 03:39 PM
I also was incredibly sad to hear this late news bulletin, he was indeed a very brave man, and it is such a shame, he fought so hard to continue his life ,limited as it was, indeed an inspiration to us all.

Although his last nine years may have not had the quality he deserved, he wanted to live and that is why it is so hard to hear he has left this world, he genuinely believed he would one day walk again.

I watched a documentary about him and his life, and to say he was amazing , is an understatement.

May you rest in peace Dear Christopher, and walk again in Heaven.

A true star in every way.!!!

Sincere condolences to his loving, devoted wife Dana and his children.

it's really to bad, and i loved him as superman!

10-11-2004, 04:17 PM
I was stunned and heartbroken when I read the news very early this morning:(:(:( He was a superhero in the true sense of the word! What courage and determination he showed his family and the world, each and every day. What an insipiration he was. Fly high, Superman. We will miss you.

10-11-2004, 05:28 PM
Yes, Richard has it just right! No more wheelchair! And he can fly anywhere now.

My heart goes out to his family, but I feel he will always be there, very close to them.

Through his incredible adversity he gave us such a fine example and did so much good work to make us aware of disabilities and the research that needs to be done.

And yes, he was a fabulous Superman............and still is!!

10-11-2004, 05:33 PM
He has been such a fighter, and has given so many others with paralysis courage and hope, he will be greatly missed and always remembered.

10-11-2004, 05:58 PM
He sure did inspire a lot of people. He made the most out of a very terrible situation. RIP Christopher! not only was he an inspiration to the handicapped, but also an inspiration to ANYONE facing tough times.

The world could learn a lot from him

I was shocked too.
He had such a rough time of it, but kept smiling thru the whole thing.

He was definately a superman.
